SweStore is also in collaboration with [http://www.ecds.se/ ECDS], [http://snd.gu.se/ SND], [http://www.bioimaging.se/swedish_bioimaging_network/Welcome.html Bioimage], [http://www.bils.se/ BILS], [http://www.uppnex.uu.se/ UPPNEX],[http://wlcg.web.cern.ch/ WLCG], [http://www.nrm.se/ Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet]. If any of these cover your research area, first read their information on applying for SweStore storage.

If you are a member of an UPPNEX project on UPPMAX, an iRODS service is already available and configured for you, please see http://www.uppmax.uu.se/faq/how-to-move-files-to-swestore-using-irods for more information on how to use it.

Unless you are instructed otherwise, submit an application to SweStore as outlined below.

Send an email to [mailto:support@swestore.se support@swestore.se]
 
 
 
Please include the following information in the application:<br>
 
* Whether you want the regular/production SweStore storage (based on dCache) or the new iRODS based storage (currently in pre-production pilot phase).
 
** If you apply for iRODS-storage: please provide a shipping address to where your yubikey should be sent.

* Project Classification code according to VR classification codes http://classification.vr.se
 
* Associated SNIC compute resource allocation (if any)
 
* Project Summary and Purpose for the storage: A short description of the project and type of data. (Max 250 words)
 
* Funding agency
 
* Describe how the data is produced (ex:- computer simulation, experimentation, observation, sensors, digitization of data)
 
* Describe by whom the data is produced, especially in case this is not within project itself
 
* Required storage capacity: Preferably a maximum size, but if this is not currently determinable, please calculate a starting size and expansion by time period. '''NOTE''' that applications larger than 10TB takes longer to process.
 
* Describe how frequently the data will be uploaded to Swestore (once, rarely, continuously)
 
* Describe which communities should be able to access the data (ex:- a set of people, VO, part of VO, publicly available)
 
* Describe what kind of access the users should have to the data (read only, read and write)
 
* Suggested project name / project title: This will be used as root directory name for your storage.
 
# '''NOTE''' that this name is long-lived and will persist. It is not coupled to the lifetime of SNIC compute time allocations.
 
# We recommend a project name not tied to a person.
 
# Additionally, we recommend that the name is not a common word or term easily confusable with other current or future research efforts.
 
# It is a good idea to select a name that's short and easy to type.
 
# The name is  limited to lower-case letters a-z, digits 0-9, hyphens - and underscores _.
